Mountains from a bird's eye perspective
Not even a mighty eagle could make it to Lourdes on a single day! Even though hikers feel close to this unique pilgrimage site thanks to the small Lourdes Grotto and its statue of the Virgin Mary. You reach the chapel after conquering one third of the whole ascent. Without any effort walkers continue on the smooth forest trail leading to a giant golden eagle made of carved wood. The beautiful bird spreads out the wings covering almost 1.80 meters. You can climb the tree on a small staircase and watch the huge wings close-by. A kids‘ slide takes you down to earth again.
The king of birds – enjoy yourself an Eagle‘s View from almost 1,400 m altitude. Soar with the eagles towards the mighty Alpine peaks which only seem a stone‘s throw away.
You simply need a small telescope provided on the vantage platform to make out the nearby mountains: Fünffingerspitze, Hahlkogel, Fundusfeiler or Gamskogel.
Starting Point: chapel next to primary school Längenfeld-Espan

Teufelskanzel

Heavenly devilish
The pleasant Duringweg walking route travels along the shore of the Ötztaler Ache river. Literally, there is no devilish sulfur in the air but pleasant scents reminding of freshly cut trees, moss and wild berries. The hike‘s ascent travels along Panoramaweg trail to the Teufelskanzel area marked with a Tirolean flag.
Here you should watch out for the blazing red devil with a trident made of steel, poking out his long tongue.
Legend has it that the local farmer and hunter Bartl sold his soul and made a deal with the devil. In return the devil promised wealth and prosperity. You are warmly invited to read the end of the whole story written on the huge information board on the spot.
One thing is for sure, the farmer Bartl enjoyed an equally fantastic view of Längenfeld‘s basin, the Suspension Bridge, Brand and Burgstein.

Winkelbergsee

excursion , various sights , excursion tips

Picture-book idyll in the fairytale forest
It happened some 10,000 years ago. Still today hikers can marvel at the vast rockslide area in the surroundings of Köfels. 4 information panels along the 5.7 km riddle path Winkelberg tell you more about this stony history.
The giant basin of Längenfeld was formed by huge amounts of water, rubble and ice. Its nearby rockslide forest is interspersed with enormous granite rocks and boulders. Can you feel the icy breath of air coming from deep inside the ravines and gorges? Maybe you better focus on the staffed forest animals watching you from behind the trees!
Of course, there is also a witch cave.
Magic never ends in the Fairytale Forest. Soon you will reach jade-green Lake Winkelbergsee with the three little islands sparkling in the summer sun. A true natural gem, fed by crystal clear spring water. Slightly above little explorers find a small mountain brook and water play park with mill wheels. Nature itself is the most inspiring playground.
Starting point: car park next to the bridge over Ötztaler Ache near Au – Winklen

Sagenweg

excursion , various sights , excursion tips

The fire-spitting dragon
The journey is its own reward – here it is true!
Behind every corner walkers can discover a new mystic figure dating back to Ötztal‘s long history in story-telling. The trail features 14 stations with life-sized fabled figures that are made from scrap metal by Annemarie and Günther Fahrner. Information panels display more detailed information on the single characters from old Ötztal tales – like “Wildes Mandl“, the mystic local, or “Engelswand“ rock face.
The ascent seems easier than expected as there are new highlights in a row: the headless horseman, the 5.5-meter tall dragon or the mystic little guy accompany hikers to the scenic wedding chapel made of wood and glass.
Picture-book natural landscapes go hand in hand with the stylish ambiance of Alpengasthof am Feuerstein. The private wine cellar – interspersed with huge rocks – is in perfect harmony with romantic candles creating a very special kind of magic.
Please note: The Trail of Legends is not illuminated!
